30 Days - Interesting Television Concept

I've been watching some shows on http://www.hulu.com hosted by the guy who made the Super Size Me documentary.

The show is called 30 Days. They challenge people to spend 30 days in someone else's shoes.

Morgan Spurlock and his fiancée Alex try living 30 days on minimum wage.

It's a good un...

This episode was good, but the other ones have a tendency to not be so serious and purposely controversial like

1. A mother goes on a 30 day bender...
2. A devout country boy goes to the city to live with a homosexual...

I think next year... I'm going to try to start a website that sells stock images/vector, just like iStock, GoMedia, and YouWorkForThem. I've spoken of the idea for at least an year now...

I've heard LEGENDS....

LEGENDS... of people earning tons of money after having created a large set of art assets, from multiple avenues.

It fits in my previous thoughts about pursuing passive streams of income.

It's somewhat easier to just turn off the creative side of the brain, and grunt out basic imagery. Also it helps me advance my shading techniques and ability.

Here's some skulls I started reducing. Skulls will always be popular... I've already used one for a client revision.

I too believe there to be a great wealth of passive income available to be made using such endeavors. Although your art is highly detailed... and mine bland in comparison, I too am considering the same.

I say do it. This will actually allow you to have more time to create as you are less stressed about client deadlines and "pimping" yourself out looking for more work due to making a killing by sitting down to watch the tube.

With regards to this idea I say go for it. I'd love to be in on the brainstorming for this :)
